Trading Brent Crude to the Upside. Central Banks in Focus.


Welcome to this week’s Market Blast Fundamentals.

I’m Brad Alexander and on behalf of Valutrades today we will take a look at the Dow Jones Industrial Average (US30), EURCHF, USDCHF, and Brent Crude (UK Oil).


Both WTI and Brent Crude fell Friday based on bad projections in Europe with the disorganized COVID Vaccine program.Screenshot 2021-03-22 at 11.02.06

This gives us an opportunity to buy assuming that many European countries resume their inoculations this week.

The concept of the return to normal, and the idea of more air travel, has helped the price of Crude Oil.

Keep an eye on your economic calendars this week as we expect a lot of volatility with Central Bank governors speaking including, the US Federal Reserve, the Bank of England, the European Central Bank, and the Bank of Japan.

Also, watch for an Interest Rate decision from Switzerland Thursday.Screenshot 2021-03-22 at 11.02.21

The Swiss National Bank has kept Interest Rates low, and the Swiss franc weaker, to help the Swiss export figures but we see consolation and, in fact, some CHF strength.

Any change in monetary policy could give us some opportunities here.

Indices like the Dow Jones Industrial Average dipped as well last week and investors will be watching both Jerome Powell and Janet Yellen this week, waiting for clues on fiscal and monetary policy, which could give us an opportunity to buy into the current uptrend.
